I think so, I should have said that I'd googled the subject and got not a whole lot out of it, other than the blog below, Rob Squires research presentation from 2005 and a bunch of scientific articles. I already knew about slowly changing dimensions as well (in theory not practice)

Nope, not a Star Trek - Voyager reference though it sounds like one, but something that our CEO was asked about by a customer. I have to confess to never having heard the term. Other than FlashBack Query/Data Archive has anyone any experience/understanding of this term as it relates to Oracle?
